SINGAPORE (AP) — Svetlana Kuznetsova ended up in first place in the White Group despite losing to Garbine Muguruza 3-6, 6-0, 6-1 on Friday at the WTA Finals.

Kuznetsova, who had already qualified for the semifinals, finished the round robin with a 2-1 record. Muguruza had already been eliminated and ended up with a 1-2 record.

Kuznetsova was the last player to qualify for the season-ending tournament. She will play Dominika Cibulkova (1-2) in the semifinals on Saturday.

The second semifinal spot from the group will be decided later Friday when defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska (1-1) plays Karolina Pliskova (1-1). The winner of that match will face top-ranked Angelique Kerber in the semifinals.
